Dating to nearly a century ago when former U.S. Sen. Frank Putnam Flint was developing the residential acreage that would become known as Flintridge, this grand mansion with its expansive rooms retains the air of a bygone era. Among the elegantly appointed rooms are an expansive center hall with a fireplace and a formal living room clad in wood.
